Pat,

Just for the record, the following CISC machines had a base above 8MB:

  B50 and up
  D45 and up
  E45 and up
  F35 and up
  200-2032

And of source, IBM's RPR and CPW ratings are always noted in the fine
print as tested with maximum memory, not minimum.  And we all know
what difference memory makes in performance.  I always wanted to see
charts comparing one generation's machine with maximum memory to
another's machine with a typical installation amount.  So many people
think they need a new box, when maybe all they need is memory and
tuning...
